First Easter Egg Hunt

Logan College of Chiropractic held a huge egg hunt on their campus yesterday.  There was a fire truck, petting zoo, balloon artist and Easter bunny came down in a helicopter.  The only bad part of it was the weather.  It was so cold yesterday…about 43 degrees and really windy.  We took shelter inside the science hall while we waited for the hunts to start.

My friend, Kelly, and her kids were in town so they came with us.  Paige and Bennett were in the three year old hunt.  It was hilarious!  Paige had no urgency whatsoever.  She would pick up an egg and open it before moving onto the next one.  She did get six eggs and we were proud of her.  Shane’s hunt started about 20 minutes after.  He did pretty good…showed a little more urgency than Paige.  After he was finished, he kept saying, “I followed directions”.  He was so cute and so proud.  Hopefully, next year will be warmer but I doubt it.




Yo Gabba Gabba Live!

Eddie and I took the kids to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live at the Fox Theatre last Sunday.  I couldn’t believe how many people were there…it was packed!  There was a line to get into the building and even a longer line to get ushered to our seats.  I could tell the kids were very excited to see the show.  Shane kept smiling and giggling and Paige was silent and had her eyes glued to the stage. 

The show contained great music and the original cast from the show.  Not only did the kids enjoy it but we did too.  That doesn’t always happen.  I love that we can take Shane and Paige to live shows…they seem to get a lot from the experience.  IMG_5603IMG_5604IMG_5634IMG_5640IMG_5656

Boynton Beach Trip 2010


We had a great time in Florida last week.  Paige and I took a trip to see my mom, my sister, Lacy, and her family.  I am sad that Shane couldn’t come with us but he got to spend some quality time with Daddy at home. 

I was able to take quite a few pictures on our trip.  The coolest place we visited was the The Girls Strawberry Patch.  The picture below was taken on Delray Beach.  Paige did not get to swim but she had a great time playing on the sand and  picking up shells.

Lacy and I were able to do happy hour on Delray Beach and Mom and I had lunch at a great Cuban restraunt.  Overall, it was a great visit!

My First Finished Project


Well, I finally finished my first knitting project – a scarf for Paige.  It was fairly easy so I plan to move on to harder projects.  Paige just loved her new scarf. She wore it out last night when we went to see Yo Gabba Gabba and didn’t take it off the rest of the night.  I am so happy she likes it!                                         DSC01731

New Found Hobby

Well, I know I have been away for awhile but that is because I have discovered knitting.  I met a girl named Stephanie at a scrapbook crop last month and she told me that she was in a knitting group.  I joined her last Wednesday in Fenton, MO, at a Barnes and Noble and she started with the knit stitch.  I have been working on my own and this is what I have so far.


Another interesting story…there was a girl named Kelly, and she said that she worked as a music therapist for the Parkway Early Childhood.  I said that my son was in music therapy there and she asked me his name.  Come to find out that she has worked with Shane numerous times when his normal therapist was out.  How crazy is that?!
